Huggo's On the Rocks
You take your nightlife where you can get it on the Hawaiian Islands - and in Kona, you can often get it (albeit in small doses) at this dressed-down sister to Huggo's Restaurant. The two are adjacent, but don't get them confused. This one serves lunch, appetizers and an entire buffet of pupus for those folks who like to nibble while they imbibe. There's music, dancing and plenty of tropical cocktailing.
Cannot fault the seting. On the rocks right by the sea. A guitar player plays and sings (every song sounds the same) and a rather mature lady dances the hula. It is not often I could complain about the size of portions in the USA but my kalbi ribs consisted of five small pieces of bone with tatters of meat attached to them. This served with potato chips straight from the packet. My wife's cocktail was so weak I took it back to complain there was no alcohol in it at all and watched while they made her another. Had to call in the deli on the way home to get a snack.
Was there on a Friday night in October; actually it was raining a little. People were still dancing and drinking. Crowd was very friendly. Most of people stood around or danced with the crowd. I'm trying to move to Big Island; where I get there I'll be hitting this place on Friday night.
Nice location & atmosphere. Service is fair to average at best. The food is on the side of good. The prices are as though it’s a much fancier place. Can’t smoke while drinking, even outside. It’ll do though.
